Model alkenes in a new way!
Alkenes are important organic molecules as the starting point for making other molecules such as plastics. Alkenes are easy to understand with our unique molecular models that shows how electrons behave during bond formation.
Your students first build their easy to make paper models of atoms and electrons. They use these to form organic molecules by sharing electrons between the atoms. The differently coloured electrons make it easy to see how the bonds are formed.
The models can then be used to show alkene structure, isomers, hydrogenation, reaction with water, reaction with hydrogen halides, reactions of asymmetrical alkenes, formation of carbocations, reactions with halogens, reaction with sulphuric acid and polymers. Clear instructions are provided in the powerpoint presentation.
